Interesting, have you written about this encounter on ATS before? If not I'd be interested in hearing your account.
Keep up the good work guys
Hi The Laughing God,
Actually, I haven't yet shared this experience for a variety of reasons. The first was utter shock at it happening. Life really wasn't nearly as
enticing with the idea that such beings could actually exist right here on Earth. Also, I shared this story with a friend of mine who hosts an Alien
website, and even he was more puzzled than anything... Finally, I told my brother who is far more into unusual theories than me, and he had a hard
time believing me, insisting that from now on I take along a camera to confirm what I see. And he knows I'd never play games with him !
So I've taken some time to write up the moments of this experience as precisely as possible, so that without actual photographic documentation, at
least others could know what I experienced, whether or not that is of any use to them. I actually think it will interest those most who have
themselves had a similar experience, because it is so unsettling that it helps to know that we are not alone confronted with such a ‘hard to face’
Before posting this I was still waiting to ask those I had dinner with that same evening, about the exact date of their invitation, but since you
asked here it is without the date. Also, I have not stated where this took place out of need to remain anonymous, but I can say it was downtown in a
major European capital - amazing indeed when you read my account. Such a sighting would have stunned me in the most remote region of the planet, in
my own neighborhood it simply floored me !
Urban Reptilian Sighting
It was approximately two and a half years ago, and I had just parked my car a few blocks from home and was walking back when I noticed a most unusual
individual. It was 2:3O AM and he was walking down the middle of the divided city street on its wide center sidewalk lined with trees. I was walking
in the opposite direction, on the left sidewalk. This was only a few blocks from my place so I was very familiar with the surroundings, and this made
such a presence stand out even more because it was out of scale with my usual references.
He was of a height which I can only describe as « the tallest person I have ever seen ». He was considerably taller than a basketball player and
had a broader figure, far more muscular and with wider shoulders and a tapered waist. I could tell this thanks to the sweat shirt and sweat pants he
wore which wrapped his muscles in a very explicit way. He seemed thickly built although he towered in height, taller yet because his legs didn’t
even look like they were extended fully. I first thought he had that posture in an attempt to partially conceal his great size, a hopeless
At first I paused, hesitating to look further because I customarily avoid looking at people who are physically unusual, big or little people, those
seriously handicapped or even famous celebrities or exceptionally beautiful women. This is out of courtesy because they must bear the gaze of others
daily, and it carries a moral burden often becoming distressing to them. But this individual was sufficiently of another order, far beyond anything I
had ever encountered, so I decided that I couldn’t turn away.
I had noticed him when he was about 500 feet away from me. Aside from his appearing very tall, the way he had necessarily entered the center band
walkway was what I first found to be very strange. His brisk gate and speed of motion made it look as though he had started onto the divider lane
sidewalk from the middle a busy intersection, rather than from one of the roadsides using the crosswalk. This was odd, because the sight of so tall a
person would have caused cars to slam on their brakes and block traffic. But it may also have been logical, because there were still a few cafes open
near those street corners.
Then as the distance separating us decreased to about 300 feet I became amazed by just how large he was, first thinking he must be the tallest
basketball player I had ever seen. I’d seen some very tall basketball players, and found that they can be impressively big. I also had spent time
in a sports shoe specialty store sizing up the largest basketball shoes and had marveled at their unusual dimensions. Living in a big city I had also
occasionally seen people afflicted with thyroid illness and gigantism. But this was at another scale which I couldn’t come to grips with.
His stride was very rapid and although it was smooth and regular he didn’t appear to be rushing, but moved forward faster than I’d ever seen in a
normal walk. Something struck me about his steps; he didn’t seem to walk normally. So I pondered on how he was walking, carefully observing his
legs and posture. I noticed that he didn’t fall forward like we usually do as we walk - catching our fall with the next step we take. He was
walking very fast but with an abnormal rhythm. The timing of his steps was regular, without a limp, but he seemed to be making continuous leaps with
an enormous muscular mass thrusting his body smoothly forward. He remained upright and stable using his leg muscles to propel his body mass forward
only removing his rear foot from the ground at the very last moment. So he was most of the time walking with both legs on the ground, very quickly
and effortlessly bringing his rear leg to the front. Despite this he advanced gracefully, without his upper body leaning or moving vertically, and
with all the motion compensation taking place in his legs. This was not a normal human stride.
He was distinctly masculine, which doesn’t correspond to the reports that reptilians are both male and female, it sure wasn’t “ladylike”. He
was walking swiftly with an unusual pace and with noticeable athletic strength. He seemed to be larger because he was walking without completely
stretching out his legs, which otherwise would make him even taller. I wondered if he was doing this, as tall people often do, to try to diminish the
visibility of his great height. Also, he was hunched forward with a considerable bulge on his upper back, which made me think he was trying to remain
as discrete as possible.
Even in proportion to his exceptional height, his shoulders were extremely broad and visibly very muscular as he wore a dark hooded sweatshirt which
molded his shape. The width of his shoulders and tapering abdomen gave him a sharply triangular silhouette offset only by his thick muscular legs. He
had more developed muscles than any body builder, not just in places – everywhere.
Also, the top of his back was humped and his upper body was slightly arched forward. I wondered whether he had a backpack under his sweatshirt, but
saw that it was too high mounted to be anything hanging on straps. This bump on his upper back ma made him look slightly slumped forward, yet with
such a posture he reached abnormally tall height: he was approximately 9-foot tall which, with his legs straightened, would make him as tall as a one
story building. Once he was around 200 feet away it struck me, the small trees next to him looked like bushes – he was so tall that he had changed
Glancing at his legs I noticed that he was wearing black sweat pants larger than I could imagine would exist in any store. Yet, they seemed to be
identical in fabrication and appearance to standard ones. He was also wearing white sport shoes with navy trim which were far bigger than the largest
I had seen made for basketball players -- approximately double their overall volume. I wondered where they might have been made. Because any factory
worker would have asked questions about pants or shoes that large. No person could ever be that size, although they seemed to be industrially
produced and not hand tailored. I wondered if this meant that somebody had made an entire series of gigantic sizes for other beings of similar
His sweatshirt had a hood which prevented the light from reflecting on his face, so from a distance I couldn’t distinguish his features. Then, as
he got closer I noticed despite the obscurity that he a bright penetrating glare in his eyes. Around 150 feet away, I tried to discern his features to
see what kind of man this must be and I was seized with terror. He exuded an impression of absolute danger, a sort of riveting electrical or magnetic
energy, something I am at a loss of words to describe, having never before felt anything like it.
I cast my eyes on his face, the sides of which were for the most part hidden by the edge of his hood. I thought at first he was the “largest person
I ever saw” until what happened next. While it had been an amazing sight, a person so incredibly large and physically powerful, it hadn’t dawned
on me that it wouldn’t be human, I figured he was a sort of giant.
But upon looking intently at his features, which were not easily distinguished in the bluish haze of neon streetlamps, I noticed that under the cowl
of his sweatshirt hood his lower face extended forward as it went down, not receding as customary below the nose. He had what I would term a dominant
mouth extending past the nose and reflecting dark greenish brown with a leathery segmented texture. This seemed really strange and I looked above at
his eyes set a couple of inches further back from what I can only refer to as his ‘snout’. Covered by the sweatshirt hood, his deep set dark red
eyes glowed larger than golf balls. It was then that I suddenly realized… that such a being couldn’t be human… While the rest defied logic, I
still didn’t know what to believe. But those EYES were striking, beaming their dark red color and looking around – they were real and a dead
giveaway that he was definitely NOT human.
I was fascinated, intrigued and wanted to try to walk right past him to get a closer look, but became gripped with uncontrollable terror. It was not
the fear I had known when I had been subjected to some of the most desperate treatments in human experience. No, it was far worse. It was neither
the fear of inescapable suffering or of getting into irremediably deep trouble, of becoming a lost cause or anything else even remotely rational. It
was as if my body had been taken over by some overpowering force taking control. I could tell by instinct that I could only die.
His quick and inordinately steady pace and impression of tremendous strength gave me chills. He was going in the opposite direction, without looking
at me or walking towards me. I could see him from three quarter profile from the west sidewalk, while he moved south swiftly on the center sidewalk.
He was approximately 100 feet away when I had to force myself to stop looking at him, out of fear of attracting his attention.
Then ensued my evasive manoeuvre which only took seconds. Every sense told me that I had better get away as swiftly and as discretely as possible,
onto the side street to my left – hoping that he hadn’t seen me and that he wasn’t on to me spying him. My feet carried me resolutely to the
side street and I found myself facing up against a building, not daring to look at him or anywhere but straight at the wall until he had passed the
crossroad, to not attract his attention.
It wasn’t out of fear for his tall size, or out of some irrational fear of the unknown that I reacted, but because of the bodily sense of the
presence of a terrifying physical danger which gave me an extreme impression of horror. One thing was certain, there was no escaping. My body
revealed its awareness that this being had tremendous physical power as well as murderous intent.
The fear was physical and wrenching, and I guessed there must be a reason for it. Then I sensed the very strong and pervasive presence of the
creature, because I confirm that this was not a human presence. I could sense his incredible strength beyond all known measure and could feel that he
was noticing everything going on around him, including that he sensed that I knew he was there, hiding helplessly. I could also sense that he was so
very deadly -- way beyond dangerous.
It seemed as though he must be some sort of deadly super warrior for which there could be no match, a “one man” army. The energy emanating from
him made me feel that twenty of our strongest men would be brushed aside in a single gesture. The only reason I dared peek in his direction, as he
passed my side street without turning his head, was to see if he was coming my way, but I tried to look without seeming to be looking, gasping and
clenching my fists, hoping, against all odds, to survive.
I waited several minutes facing the wall, but it seemed like an eternity before I dared to even try to sense whether he was still nearby. Because I
was sure that he’d know I’d tried to sense his presence. Fortunately, he was far enough away and I had survived what I can only call “a close
call”. Shaken up but determined to get home and put this all behind me, I cautiously walked back to the main street, checking for any traces of him
to my right, and then turning left to return home at a quick pace, all the time wondering how such a being could even exist, much less that he could
be walking around at night in a bustling city. All I could imagine was that he must somehow live underground, because were he above the surface there
would be major panic in the land.
It was the first time that I had felt such a presence of a predator far above us on the food scale, like an antelope before a lion. This shook my
preconceptions as I had always assumed that mankind was at the top of the pecking order. My body showed me it had its own situational intelligence,
putting me in panic mode to get me out of a tight spot. My mind however remained lucid and I wanted to know who or what it was. But a violent
message came from my entire body to stop me in my tracks, something I never experienced before or after, a sense of absolute EVIL and a most serious
concern that something of great consequence is being hidden from us by our governments.
